Sony Ericsson W880i review

 

Does it get any thinner than this?

Great looks and fashionably thin ; 3G connectivity ; Very good music player with 1GB memory card

Keys small ; No FM radio ; No flash

There's no doubt it's a fashion item but we're pleased to report this hasn't come at the expense of performance or features

Can a mobile be too thin? Sandra checks out the waif-like W880i.

Sony Ericsson W880i review

 

The W880i is the second Walkman phone in the group. It's much flashier than the W200i, but it's also far more expensive.

Stuff magazine

 

The Walkman phone has been reinvented as a pancake-thin trendsetter. But can the W880i's svelte body still produce a musical roar?

The first truly iconic music mobile, and a clever 3G handset to boot. Only those with excessively fat fingers should avoid

Review: Sony Ericsson W880i – super thin 3G phone

 

The propaganda If your image of 3G phones is super bulky handsets, then Sony Ericsson's W880i will make you think again. It measures just a tiny 9.4mm thick – thin enough to fit inside a CD case according to the…

Sony Ericsson W880i

 

The Walkman phone dynasty thunders on, but its latest handset, the slimline W880i, has ambitions beyond music. It has the style mile in its sights.…

The slick Walkman player cannot be touched in terms of user-friendliness, features and energetic fidelity

Watch out for the itsy-bitsy, teenie-weenie keypad. Some of you might not be able to live with it

It is not perfect, but a Walkman phone with a slimline design is still a killer combination.

While its dimensions are not exactly size zero, its keyboard appears to have been designed for users who do qualify for this description

Joining the ever-expanding family of Sony Ericsson Walkman phones . This tri-band device (GSM 900/1800/1900), with 3G functionality for good measure, combines still and video camera capabilities; MP3/AAC music playback; 3D Java games; and the full...

Super slim Jim

 

Super slim design ; excellent screen ; nice user interface ; feature-rich music player

Average camera ; no FM radio ; poor video quality

Overall, the W880i is a noteworthy addition to the Walkman series of phones. It has a good interface, excellent screen and useful features, and should fit the bill of every mobile user.

Sony Ericsson - W880i

 

If you like your mobile phones thin and light, then the W880i Walkman phone from Sony Ericsson is definitely going to catch your eye. It is a mere 9.4mm thick and it weighs an incredible 71g. ...

The W880i certainly looks appealing, and if a super-thin phone is what you need then it may appeal. But taken all round it is more average than leading light. Anyone with a penchant for fast texting should try before they buy.
